Plank is not out of line

Is Port Covington financial aid any different from typical infrastructure investment?

The fallacy of Mark Thistel's letter to the editor ("Plank can afford his development," March 19) that responded to The Sun commentary ("Why Baltimore should support Sagamore," March 15) concerning Port Covington redevelopment was his notion that developer Sagamore and Under Armour CEO Kevin Plank should "be willing to pay for it himself, just as we are expected to pay for the house we'd like to live in."

I'm pretty sure that Mr. Thistel didn't pay for construction of the streets and utilities infrastructure serving his own house, which is what Sagamore Development appears to be requesting help with.
